Kalina's skeletal remains were found near a mine dump in McKinley in St. Louis County on May 11 by a neighbor walking through the area. St. Louis County authorities believe his remains were there since the fall of 2011.

Personal belongings were found with the remains, including IDs, indicated that it was Kalina. He was never reported missing from any state.
